      I stayed at Nyumbani Hostel for two months and felt completely at home the entire time. The staff at Nyumbani Hostel are so incredibly friendly and I will miss them all so much. They are so quick to offer help and support no matter what it is. The manager Teddy is the funniest and sweetest person and is always willing and ready to help and direct if needed. The mamas cook amazing food and I was so happy to find a hostel that also provides food for breakfast and full meals at dinner. The rooms are very comfortable and there is a great projector in the living space that is perfect for movie nights with other guests. They also offer a lot of day trips and I joined a couple which turned out to be amazing trips. I would definitely recommend Nyumbani! Asante sana

      From the moment of booking, Nyumbani offered unrivaled support and help throughout; from picking me up from the airport, to a city tour and in-depth information on how to get around during my stay. Finding a hostel that not only serves breakfast but dinner too was a huge relief, saving me plenty of time each evening to just relax and enjoy some fantastic Tanzanian food. I soon made friends with other guests and volunteers (they run a volunteer/intern project here, so there's no shortage of interesting people around!), and went on day trips to Chemka Hot Springs and the Maasai Village them - all arranged by Nyumbani Hostel. I couldn't have been happier with my stay, thanks for making me feel at home!

    • Great trip arrangement

      Reviewed 03 May 2019

      I contacted Tizia from Nyumbani hostel to help me organize my trip to Tanzania. She replied very quickly with full and clear information and helped me with all my questions. She arranged my mount Meru climb and a 4day Safari, which were both amazing and unforgettable experiences. Between the trips I slept one night at the hostel were I felt very welcome. I can recommend to contact Tizia for all your Tanzania trip arrangements!

    • Nice, clean but no communication

      Overall, nice and clean hostel rooms but the kitchen was filthy. Foul dirty water sitting in the kitchen sink and dirty dishes from the day before coveri g the bench tops. Despite stating I was staying with my brother, there was only one bed. They promptly set up a second, which was great. Bathrooms clean and taken care of, unfortunately the staff didn't I produce themselves and I never met the lady k had such good email and Facebook communication with. Our safari was organised by Nyumbani and not only was the guide over an hour late for our briefing but we were on tour with a chef who's food made me very sick. Coincidentally, I asked for some soap to wash my hands before do her as there is none in the public campsite bathrooms. The chef was midway through cooking us dinner and stated he had no idea if there wa soap, "probably not" and continued handling food! By this stage I was really unwell in the stomach as was another group member. One Nyumbani dog growled at me, too! They barked all night long

    • Perfect place to feel like home!

      I spent almost 3 weeks in Nyumbani, which really became a home for me! Thanks to Tizia, who took care for everything I needed! Already before my stay she helped me with everythng, so I arrived with a good feeling. Here in the hostel she was always caring for everybody at any time and organized any trip we wanted! I could see so many nice places, go for daytrips and on safari, learn Kisuaheli or do yoga with Tizia - all these experiences I would never have made so easily without her help... The atmosphere in the hostel was always welcoming and open, all the guests and the staff members are very friendly and helpful. And Tizia was more than a hostel owner, she became a friend... Thank you so much for everything! I would love to come back!
